    My love of gravy, sopped up with bread, is unsurpassed. Not something I have more than a few times year, but, boy oh boy is it gooood.

    My dad loved white bread, roast beef and gravy all over it.

    Not only is gravy a wonderful thing to eat, it's a great "exclamation"....expresses enthusiasm and completely non-offensive.
    Come to think of it, Good Gravy is a terrific band name....imagine that up on a marquee. ;)

    As much as I dislike fast food, I love KFC's gravy.

    Well, somebody's bound to like it. For somebody raised in the South like me, I never liked it...on anything.

    Golf being a good walk spoiled (thank you, Mr. Clemens); in much the same vein, Gravy is a good roux misused.

    While I enjoy au jus, I dislike it when flour or starch is added to thicken it. Juices! Give me hot, slithery, shiny, meat juices! :eek::D

    Wouldn't be a proper Thanksgiving without the addition of thick Turkey Gravy.

    Reminds me of the festive meal that my wife spent hours on, cooking everything to perfection in time for me to breeze in right at the end and make the gravy (always my job).

    My mother sat down to the table, and the whole family start tucking into it. After a short while, mother says " Mmmmm...excellent gravy".............and nothing added to the comment.

    Although it was many years ago, we have not let her live it down.

    My wife was not offended, and we all laughed about it a lot, and yes...it really was an excellent gravy.

    So I'm curious. Is American gravy the same as British? Spoon off some the juice from the bottom of the roasting and mix with water and this?

    I’m not competing. I’m fine with our love for gravy being equal.

    I don't know if there's an American version of Bisto, but using Bouillon cubes to supplement the meat drippings collected from the bottom of the pan (and water) is common.
